Already with two years’ expe- rience under his belt, Andrew was born in Taiwan, raised in the Waikato and was attracted to the area by “the village, the people and the ocean.” With Bachelors of Law and Man- agement from Waikato University, he is well equipped to continue the work of Kelly Flavell Law’s general practice. “We do virtually anything and everything from house sales through trusts, wills, estates together with civil and criminal work,” says practice principal Kelly Flavell. “Andrew is working alongside lawyers Dejana Manic and Pamela Puckree.” Dejana, from Croatia, is New Zea- land-qualified, while Pamela quali- fied in both South Africa and New Zealand. “We have a multi-national team that is well qualified to serve the diverse multicultural community that is East Auckland,” says Kelly. Fluent in Chinese (Mandarin) Andrew says he loves meeting and helping people. “I believe lawyers are problem- solvers,” he says. “I think people are often surprised by the ways we, as lawyers, can help them.” Away from work, Andrew is an avid fisherman, plays “an average” game of golf, enjoys most sports and out- door activities. “I think I’m approachable and easy to talk to, and look forward to meet- ing and assisting the people of this area,” he says. “This is a small, tight-knit team that relates well to people. We are here to help... just give us a call.” Kelly Flavell started as a sole prac- titioner in 1975, with offices in Papa- toetoe, Remuera and Auckland City. In 1995, he moved the business to its present location in Howick, where it has become an integral part of the village and legal fraternity. Kelly Flavell Law 18 Uxbridge Road Ph: 09 535 2150.

Shop local and reap the benefits ANZAC 2014 - WWI COMMEMORATIONS A century since WWI By Morrin Cooper, MBE, JP, former Mayor of Howick THE Great War of 1914-1918 is unbelievably 100 years ago. I wasn’t there, but my father Corporal Thomas Sheppard Ernest Cooper of the First Mounted Wel- lington Rifles was and even cel- ebrated his 21st birthday in Flanders Fields with a can of condensed milk and a can of peaches! The only gift he received from the French was trench feet as a result of wallowing in water in the trenches for three years. On return to New Zealand, he established an engineering business in Tauranga where he also became the proud owner of a 40-foot launch. During WWII, he along with many others, regularly (by conscrip- tion) patrolled the Tauranga Har- bour against the possible attack by foreign submarines. I, aged seven, was his forward hand. I also became at this age a member of the Tauranga Municipal Band and for many years turned out on Anzac Day to play the Last Post and Reveille at civic functions in Tauranga. On moving to Howick in 1951, my mother and father joined the RSA, as did I as a social member, and con- tinued to play the bugle at the civic ceremonies on Stockade Hill com- memorating Anzac Day. From 1974-1989 during my 15 years as Mayor of the Borough of Howick, I was always proud to be involved in the wonderfully sup- ported Anzac Day parades, by join- ing with the RSA and the community at large and taking the salute in Pic- ton Street following the service. The last of these occasions for me as mayor in 1989 was a particu- lar highlight, when I was accompa- nied by my eldest son Captain Brett Cooper, of the New Zealand Army, who was my Escort Officer. I was pleased to be invited by the late Dr Rodney Wilson, cura- tor of the Auckland War Memorial Museum, to record the Last Post and Reveille, which is played every day in the museum at 5pm. RESPECTED: Anzac Day is a day of reflection for the always jovial Morrin Cooper, the popular former Mayor of Howick, pictured at Stockade Hill last year.
